learning goal: what is the difference between a paraphrase and summary?
After reviewing last week’s article about young tobacco workers in North Carolina (see last Friday’s agenda), email to email@example.com a 3-5-sentence original summary of the article. Follow this summary with a 1-2-sentence personal response. In other words, how does the article make you feel? What thoughts remain with you after reading this article? Please use “NC article summary” in the subject heading of your email. Thank you.
With any time left, you can start brainstorming on a poem for next Friday, or research child laborers in other parts of the world.
Next Friday, you will work on an original poem in the voice of a child laborer somewhere in the current world. That voice need not come from the girl featured in the NYTimes article about NC tobacco farms, but it could.
